Job vs RSM (this year) vs LSE (next year, if accepted) [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2014, 08:04
Hello!

I'm in a terrible dilemma and I don't know what I should do.

In autumn 2013 I've applied to both LSE and RSM. I've been rejected from LSE (Msc Finance + Msc Accounting and Finance), but offered a place at Rotterdam School of Management (MSc in Finance and Investments starting September 2014). The university is alright (#5 in Europe according to FT), but I would like to work in Asset Management in London after finishing my Masters degree, I don't know if RSM (being a Dutch University) would offer me this opportunity as easily as LSE would.

Furthermore, I've been offered a job at the biggest Asset Management firm in my country. I could work here for 1 year and then apply to LSE again. But what if I get rejected 1 more time? Wouldn't this be a lost year? My dream university is LSE. What if I'll get rejected again?

Should I go to RSM starting from september this year? Or should I work 1 year in Asset Management first and then reapply to LSE? Wouldn't staying in my home country for another year be considered a lost year? What if I wake up at 25 years old, just finishing my Masters degree and applying for jobs -- wouldn't I be too old?

Any input is valuable.
